Cupcakes On Wheels

PHILADELPHIA (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Ice cream trucks are so last season, it’s cupcakes on wheels that really take the cake.

Former lawyer Kate Carrara runs the Buttercream Cupcake Truck, a mobile treat shop that sells cupcakes all over Philadelphia.

Carrara gets the bulk of her clientele by posting up in busy downtown Philly, where her main customers are working professionals.

Regulars in suits charge her for treats daily, flocking like little kids to an ice cream truck.

Her cupcake menu is pretty sweet.

The most popular one is the red velvet with cream cheese topping, but the cupcake queen is looking to put a little spice into her baked goods in the future.

She plans on creating “alcoholic cupcakes” laced with booze like Bailey’s and rum.

Carrara believes cupcakes are far superior to donuts, though she isn’t sure she’ll ever sway Philly cops to come her way.
